2 feet- The Action from Your Place- is a project that promotes the individual prevention of global warming. Through the experience with this project, I am expecting people will learn about global warming and create their original solutions because our daily life and global warming are closely related.

Food, clothing and shelter are important elements in human life, and science and technology have not only enriched our life but also promoted human consumption. We have to keep in mind that our society produces a lot of waste and it seriously influences our natural environment in many ways, of which is global warming. At present, global warming proceeds and it is said that most sandy beaches of the world will have ceased to exist by 2100. Now, we are facing a turning point. In order to stop the growth of global warming, which is the by-product of our consumption society, we, consumers, have to reconsider our behavior.

The subject of this project is helping users understand how closely their daily consumption and global warming are related and reform their consciousness and behavior by getting knowledge and sharing experience with other users.
